    Beard swabs yield 'disturbing' results:eek:

    (NEWSER) – Beard hygiene is important unless you want to have the equivalent of a dirty toilet seat growing out of your face, according to a microbiologist who swabbed a bunch of beards and was shocked by the results. "I'm usually not surprised and I was surprised by this," Quest Diagnostics expert John Golobic tells KOAT, explaining that some samples yielded the "types of things you'd find in" fecal matter, signaling a "degree of uncleanliness that would be somewhat disturbing" even if the beard matter probably won't make people sick. Golobic says that similar results in a public water system would close it for disinfecting. He urges the bearded to keep their beards—and hands—clean, and "to keep your hands away from your face, as much as possible."

    Nick Evershed at the Guardian, however, notes that this wasn't exactly a scientific study—and even if it was, the diversity of microbes found on human skin means it wouldn't have to be cause for concern. Evershed checked out a few more serious studies on beard bacteria, which were conducted in hospitals, and found that while bearded workers do appear to shed more bacteria than others, even clean-shaven workers shed enough to show the importance of "face coverings for sterile procedures, regardless of your facial hair situation." (A bank robber in Pittsburgh disguised his beard with another beard.)

    Check out the World Beard and Mustache Championships:

    A lot of people don't wash their hands after using the bathroom (I see that just about every day when I'm washing my hands in the mens room). Fucking assholes then put their hands all over the common area (coffee pot handle, styrofoam cups, door handles)

    People are animals.
    Some of these animals have beards~

    For some reason it annoys me even more when they do a half-assed two-second rinse without any soap.

    And honestly, #1 doesn't bother me THAT much, #2 deserves an execution.

    Anyway, in this day and age I think the biggest travesty is the amount of people (probably close to 98%) who don't ever sanitize their cell-phones. I constantly hear people taking calls in the middle of a shit, god knows what's going on inside their house while still surfing on the 4G.

    This is like the people that sleep on filthy pillows and bedding and don't know it.

    On 1 May 2015, a rumor began to circulate online claiming a “study” assessed the beards of average men and made a shocking discovery: they’re basically dripping with fecal matter (known colloquially as “poop”).

    The headlines followed, ones such as “Study: Men’s Beards are Filled with Poop and Nasty Bacteria,” “Your beard is dirty as a toilet,” and “How Filthy Is Your Beard?” The intrigue of the claim at a time when beards were certainly somewhat in fashion led to little scrutiny of its base facts … most notably, what study?
